Meridian, the award-winning private aviation company, is proud to announce that it has been accepted as a verified Products and Services member of the International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA), the only aviation organization that accredits aircraft dealers. Aviation Product and Service providers are thoroughly vetted before acceptance to assure the highest ethical standards and levels of experience.
IADA specialists offer buyers and sellers of preowned aircraft the best advice available to make the most appropriate deals. IADA’s Products and Services members have been verified by the organization to assist in aircraft transactions. In addition, more than 40 IADA-accredited dealers specialize in representing buyers and sellers.
Products and Services members are those companies whose primary focus is related to the support of an aircraft transaction, whether their expertise is finance, legal, tax, escrow, or maintenance. The membership application process for Products and Services membership is rigorous. It begins with an applicant completing the standard application. As part of the application process, the candidate will contact three IADA members to ask for their support as a sponsor. The IADA membership votes on new Products & Services applicants twice a year.
Patti Ann Sullivan, Meridian’s VP of Aircraft Management, quickly welcomed the news. “IADA is a premier organization for aviation companies. We are both excited and honored to be part of this prestigious group. Aircraft Management is one of our core business offerings, so it’s a natural fit for us. We look forward to contributing our expertise and resources to help expand the mission of the organization, as well as to support fellow member companies.”
“As the world’s only accredited aircraft dealer organization, we are pleased to have Meridian as a new Products and Services member,” said IADA Executive Director Wayne Starling. “Meridian strengthens our organization during a pivotal economic time when buyers and sellers of aircraft are navigating a rapidly changing economic environment.”
